Annual Scientific Meeting – 7th/8th July London 2022


Dear Colleagues

We very much look forward to greeting you at the British Gynaecological Cancer Society annual scientific meeting in Chelsea from 7th – 8th July 2022.

The theme of the conference is Diversity and Innovation, with sessions dedicated to these specific areas. In addition, we will have themed sessions on diagnosis and prevention, teaching, oncology and surgery so there will be a widespread of topics for oncologists, radiologists, special interest gynaecologists and gynaecological oncologists.

Our keynote speaker will be Bill Cliby from the Mayo clinic in Rochester. The programme will also include a number of well-known local speakers. We will have a session of the usual proffered papers as oral presentations but in addition, a selection of posters will be selected for a Peta Kutcha – a fun event where slides are automatically advanced every 20 seconds and speakers have to reach the stage in time or face the embarrassment of missing their slide.

The BGCS meetings are a perfect balance of education and diversion and they are always extremely social. Learning and being updated in an enjoyable atmosphere is what we are all about. We are expecting a wide representation from industry and the conference will be held at Stamford Bridge Conference Centre so if you are a supporter you can praise your hallowed turf but if not, you can enjoy the novel surrounds of a major football ground.

This has the potential for being an extremely enjoyable face to face conference and we very much hope that you will join us.

Thomas Ind
Consultant Gynaecological Surgeon, Royal Marsden Hospital, London, UK
